Definition of Epigastric:

The abdomen is the area between the chest and the hips.  Divided into a 3-by-3 grid, the upper-center abdomen lies behind the bottom half of the center of the rib cage.  This is also known as the stomach or epigastric region, or epigastrium.  It contains the stomach, liver tip, pancreas tail, duodenum, spleen, adrenal glands, transverse colon, small intestine, the left and right kidneys, and the left and right ureters.
